Margaret Fisher was elected Lexington County coroner two years ago in a special election. She ran on the platform that she was the most qualified, with her “law enforcement experience” and “medical training.” Today she is still making these claims.
Her campaign says she has an “RN degree.” This is very misleading as it implies that she is a nurse. If you go to the website of the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, you will see that she is not a nurse; she did receive a nursing degree in 1997, but I have asked her campaign three times what “medical training” she has had in 20 years, with no reply. What makes her the “most qualified” over her opponent, Frank Barron, who served 22 years as coroner for Richland County?
We cannot continue this good-ol’-boy or -girl system that is built on lies and mistrust. I encourage voters to do their research and vote for the candidate who is truly the “most qualified.”
